Describe the multi-stakeholder consultation process established for the preparation of this report, including consultations with relevant ministries, public institutions, local governments and civil society organizations.: 

For the preparation of this Report, by Order of Her Excellency the Minister of Culture and Tourism, Mozambique was represented in a capacity building in Pretoria - RSA, where in addition to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the National Commission for UNESCO - CNUM - MOZNATCOM and the Mozambican Association of Authors - SOMAS, representing Civil Society, were also members. For the process of preparing the Report, a Commission was set up which included representatives of related public institutions; the private sector and civil society organisations.

For the production of the Quadrienal Periodic Report, the Commission not only had access to the legal framework, but also to the main policies, strategies and programmes in the field of Culture.

The Commission also consulted data from other public bodies implementing activities in the Cultural and Creative sector, diverse literature and reports produced between 2007 and 2019.

Reports on several events held in Mozambiquem, such as the 2nd National Conference on Culture, the Forum on Cultural Industries and Creative Economy, internationals fora, meetings of Arts and Culture Council, seminars and workshops organised both by the the Ministry responsible for Culture and civil society, cultural associations and groups had a valuable contribution to the Quadrienal Periodic Report.

A meeting was held to present the terms of reference of the report to the constituted Commission, which created space for public debate on the proposed Regular Report, thus welcoming contributions to its improvement and perfection.

In gratitude for a deferred bonus by UNESCO in Paris, in favour of the States that submit their Reports for the first time, the contents of this Quadrienal Periodic Report 2015-2019, cover the period from October 2007, when the Republic of Mozambique ratified the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.

Executive summary: 

When the Government of the Republic of Mozambique ratified the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions in October 2007, the Ministry superintending Culture adopted two-year Action Plans for its implementation.

Actions have implemented aimed at strengthening institutional capacity in the field of the protection and promotion of copyright and related rights. The main purpose in order to combat the counterfeiting of phonograms and videograms; implementing legal measures for the production, importation and commercialisation of phonograms; establishing procedures for the licensing and performance of performances, public entertainment, the operation of public performance venues; and the participation of civil society in the collective management of copyright.

With regard to the mobility of artists, seven National Festivals of Culture held every two years, provincial and municipal festivals every year and international festivals. The national festival, the provincial and municipal festivals were organised by the Government and municipal authorities, while the others were organised by show promoters, with a total of 412 in the whole territory, with the participation of 16,363 national and foreign artists and attended by 162,544,378 spectators.
